A poem for children who have parents serving overseas.

      My dad is a soldier.
      He's far away.
      But he will return
      to our home one day.

      He's keeping me safe.
      His duty is clear.
      I'm in dad's thoughts.
      He loves me dear.
      My dad is a hero.
      No one can say no.
      He's protecting us all.
      He's brave to go.

      My job is to help
      to clean up my toys,
      to play and relax,
      same as all girls and boys.

      And when my brave dad
      returns to me
      he'll get kisses and hugs
      as big as the sea.
     My mom is a soldier.
      She's far away.
      But she will return
      to our home one day.

      She's keeping me safe.
      Her duty is clear.
      I'm in mom's thoughts
      She loves me dear.
      My mom is a hero.
      No one can say no.
      She's protecting us all.
      She's brave to go.

      My job is to help
      to clean up my toys,
      to play and relax,
      same as all girls and boys.

      And when my brave mom
      returns to me
      she'll get kisses and hugs
      as big as the sea.
